Winemaker Notes

The wines have aromas of red berries and also ripe white fruits such as peaches and apricots. The fine tannins are numerous and blend in nicely with the smoothness and the aromas.

Critical Acclaim

BH 93
Burghound.com
This is also markedly ripe yet not quite as ripe as the Fremiers with its array of both red and dark currant, black cherry, tobacco and warm earth aromas that are trimmed in noticeable wood. There is fine detail and reasonably good punch to the lush and very round medium-bodied flavors that also display a hint of mocha. This too is a big and overtly powerful Pommard yet it avoids being top heavy. Note that I would strongly suggest that this not even be considered before it has at least 10 years of bottle age.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Rich and open-knit, offering cherry, chocolate, carob, sandalwood and green olive aromas and flavors. The tannins are severe now, yet this has enough sweet fruit for balance. Firm finish. Best from 2018 through 2030.

Pommard Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

Representing some of the darkest, deepest and sturdiest Pinot Noir of Burgundy, Pommard is one of the two villages in Côte de Beaune—along with Volnay—that is recognized for its impressive Pinot Noir. While it can’t boast any Grands Crus vineyards, its extraordinary Premiers Crus vineyards are aplenty.

Les Pézerolles, Les Épenots, Clos des Épeneaux, Les Chanlins, Les Jarolières, Les Fremiers and particularly Les Rugiens are among the most outstanding Premiers Crus.

The best Pommards will be concentrated in flavors such as black cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate, have dazzling aromas of violets, menthol or wild herbs and a firm and powerful finish. They typically demand some time in the bottle to reach their peak.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
